drywall box, or a concrete box?

So, I have the choice between two places to start setting up my studio. One is basically a drywall box in the back of an office building. I can't do make any perminate changes to it, so i'm stuck with that awful drywall sound. I might be able to do some changes to it, but not much. On the other hand, i have a large concrete space. It has high ceilings (not sure what they are made of) and its basically a large garage, i can mod it however i see fit, but it might be difficult because of the high ceilings. There is also the lack of a seperate room for monitoring, but it is big enough that people can be many-a-feet away well recording.

So where is a better place to set up a small studio?

I don't like the idea of either surface as-is but could you put some wood up in the concrete space? Make your own nice wood room, that would be great. Not cheap though! Might be able to also make it into a space with varied surfaces, if you have enough space.

A place where you can put up room treatment is better.

The knowledgeable guys will likely state that the larger room choice is usually better. But in either case, you need to treat the room and can do so with things that don't damage the room.
